As promised, I’m posting about how to make facing binding for your quilts. I used the “triangle corners” method. This method reduces the bulk in the corners but is more complicated than using mitered corners.
CUT TWO (2) 6 1/2 INCH SQUARES
CUT 2-INCH STRIPS
You will need enough strips to fit around the edges of the quilt.
SEW THE STRIPS TOGETHER
You will have one for each side.
PLACE TRIANGLES ON EACH CORNER
You will pin in place.
PLACE A STRIP TO THE LEFT SIDE AND THEN THE RIGHT SIDE OF EACH TRIANGLE
The strips need to be at least 1/4 inch inside the edge of the triangle. You are going to sew the triangle to the two strips. Pin in place.
REPEAT FOR EACH TRIANGLE
PIN FACING TO QUILT, RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER
HAND STITCH THE FACING TO THE QUILT
Facing is beautiful,
